    Der Guide ist sehr freundlich und betreut einen gut. Zu Beginn geht es mit dem Boot raus und es wird etwas zu der Gegend erzählt. Sofern Anfänger dabei sind wird die Ausrüstung im nächsten Schritt erklärt und am Anfang einige Tauchübungen im niedrigen Wasser gemacht bevor es mit dem Scooter losgeht. Nach der Tauchtour gab es Getränke und Melone. Vom Dach des Bootes konnte man gute Fotos machen oder ein kleines Sonnenbad nehmen. Bevor es zurück ging in den Hafen hatte wir noch kurz die Möglichkeit schwimmen zu gehen. Was leider nicht im Text erwähnt wird ist, dass Erfahrungen im Tauchen eigentlich vorausgesetzt werden. Fazit: Es ist ein schönes Erlebnis und Taucherfahrungen sind von Vorteil

    it was a unique experience. our guides were super nice and very patient. we have little diving experience and they took great care of us. the scooter was easy to operate and the underwater landscape was very impressive.

    Expérience vraiment sympa, Andrea et son équipe ont été très à l’écoute des participants. Seul hic, qui n’est pas de leur fait: le site GETYOURGUIDE n’a pas précisé qu’il fallait le certificat de plongee, ce qui peut en pénaliser certains. Je recommande vivement cette activité!
